  • I had to use a CWB to correct for the yellow radioactive lens.
  • I've tried several M42 lenses on my sdQ, and the image results look great (however I haven't tried any wide angle lenses yet. I have noticed some magenta/green coloring on the live view, even when ...
  • I truly appreciate it. I think everyone watching would have agreed!
  • I was actually there for another reason, although I always wait for the sunset if it's happening in a good location, and I have the chance. It had been a cloudy day all day, so I wasn't thinking ...
  • Minutes before the actual sunset last night, it didn't look promising at all: But eight minutes after the 'official' sunset, this is what happened sd Quattro with 28-70mm 2.8 lens. These are some ...
  • Some nice test shots Larry. Colors and contrast and sharpness all there. I'm wondering how you processed the files. I've found files with the sd Quattro don't take to sharpening the same way ...
  • As long as you have the DG/EX version, I'm sure it will work well. I had the 50mm 2.8 EX in Sigma mount, but it's one of the lenses I sold to get the money to purchase the sd Q. I still have the ...
  • You can only get the processing for SFD in SPP. But it does create a set of images that you can save individually from SPP into XPF files, save those to TIFF or JPEG, and use those in the HDR ...
  • Congrats! I shot weddings with the 5DMkII (something that I would never attempt with a Sigma camera). I always found that the Canon images were lacking something, that I could detect in the Sigma ...
  • Richard, I never analysed the placement of the power switch, but I agree with you, that when I pick up the camera, there's a normal placement for me to have my left thumb very near the switch, and ...
  • Beautiful shot Vitée. There's a classic B&W look to it. I just bought a ND filter to fit my Sigma lenses for the sdQ, and am considering options for local long exposure shots. I wish we had some ...
  • Replied in Family Portrait
    This is the first time I've used the sdQ for taking pictures of people! Taken with the Sigma 28-70mm 2.8 EX lens.
  • I wonder how an m42 to PK adapter might work. I have connected modified PK lenses to my SD9/SD14
  • the images from that lens look good on an sdQ. What adapter are you using? The 2 that I own have notches on the back that get stuck on the weather seal ring, and are almost impossible to click all ...
  • Thanks Tom. It was the clouds that got my attention to start with, so I exposed for the sky. Then started playing in SPP to see how much I could recover from the shadows. It's interesting how SPP ...
  • Wow, Tom, thanks for all this info! I still have a fairly simple thought process on DOF, and haven't really considered it in such detail for what I shoot. Theoretically, DOF at 5.6 would give more ...
  • Replied in Local Town Hall
    This was taken last August, but it was in a directory with a few of my first SFD attempts (BTW - hand held does not work!) Fairly strong adjustments in SPP, and then fixed perspective in Photoshop ...
  • Hi Tom, I was just wondering about your serial AF tests. Are you shooting with a 1.4 aperture or stopped down? It would seem that, unless you are shooting something close to you, that DOF could ...
  • Mike - which 10-20mm, the older, or the newer f3.5? I haven't done the 1.05 update yet, but still have no acceptable AF with the older 10-20mm. Thanks, -John
